In the chapter “Whatever” in Always On, Baron explains “as faculty, we have been trained to celebrate what our students have to say and encourage them to express themselves—literally in their own words.” (Baron 170) Do you agree with this statement? Should we encourage our students to express themselves even if that includes “text talk” and other slang in formal assignments? As a teacher what steps might you take to encourage or discourage this type of writing?
